Ah, spring - a time of flowers, sunshine and hanging out with your open source friends online! Yep, I'm talking about this year's first documentation hack day on Saturday May 23rd.
But the number of issues and unfinished pull-requests has been creeping up, and we're putting an ever-greater emphasis on making sure that all our docs are up to date, relevant and easy to understand.
And this is where we need your help! Whether you're a seasoned-Symfony veteran, a beginner, or even if you don't think your English is very good, we'd like you to join us on May 23rd for our Symfony Docs Hack Day. Here are the details:
May 23rd from 9am Central European Time to 3pm Eastern Standard Time
We'll meet on IRC at #symfony-docs on Freenode
Hosts weaverryan, WouterJ and xabbuh along with you and all your friends. The Hack Day is for everyone - we need Symfony experts and newcomers. If you're newer to Symfony, you give us a fresh look at the documentation!
And if you're not comfortable with the contributing process, it's no problem: the docs are a great way to start contributing, and we're all very nice and helpful :).
One of us will help make sure you have something to do! Our focus will be:
a) Creating pull requests for actionable issues on GitHub;
b) Adopting existing pull requests where the original contributor is too busy (it happens, no worries);
c) Re-reading certain core documents for accuracy, links that can be added, ease-of-understanding, consistency, and to see if entries can be broken into pieces and made shorter;
If you have any questions, thoughts or suggestions about the documentation or any of this, just drop a comment below. If you're reading this, then you're probably a Symfony user, so the docs are for you, and we like you.
